November 18 - Dear Dave

Dear Dave,

I’ve been trying to save cash to buy a home, but things always seem to come up that eat away at my savings. I have $130,000 set aside, plus an emergency fund, and I make $120,000 a year. I’m debt-free and renting right now, but eventually I’d like to buy a house in the $300,000 range. I really hate the idea of owing the bank money, so would you advise continuing to save and pay cash, or is it okay to make a big down payment and take out a small mortgage?

November 17 - Americans Hate Waiting, So They'll Despise Single Payer

Americans Hate Waiting, So They'll Despise Single Payer
By Sally C. Pipes

What makes for an awful trip to the doctor? Waiting.

Earlier this year, doctor-rating website Zocdoc found that long waits or appointment delays were the primary motivators of negative marks from patients.

Given this aversion to waiting, it's shocking that Americans are coming around to government-run, single-payer health care. Waiting is endemic to single-payer. The healthcare systems of countries all over the world prove as much.

November 14 - Energy Lessons from the Recent Hurricanes

By Merrill Matthews

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma killed dozens of Americans and caused tens of billions of dollars in property damage. But there's one silver lining. The storms taught us three invaluable lessons about the U.S. energy market.

We need more refineries scattered around the country. Harvey decimated the Gulf Coast, which accounts for about 55 percent of overall U.S. refining capacity. S&P Global Platts estimates that Harvey temporarily shut down five refineries and limited the output of 10 more.

November 13 - dAVE sAYS

 

Dear Dave,

Our son is about to graduate from law school. He took out a loan to cover the cost, but we’ve always been debt-free and have been paying on it to help him out while he finishes his studies. The balance on the loan right now is around $30,000. He has a job waiting for him after he graduates, so we’re thinking about telling him it will be his responsibility to finish paying off the loan at that point. Is that wrong?

Pat
